History

Before F-Zero X

Kate Alen was a renowned singer and dancer, even chosen to perform the opening ceremony of the F-Zero Grand Prix in the past.

She had also performed at an outdoor concert at Red Canyon before the F-Zero X Grand Prix, but within the same year.

But despite her career, Kate had been captivated by the speed and thrill of F-Zero. She then poured a vast amount of her fortune into commissioning Team Power Voice to build her an F-Zero machine, the Super Piranha.

Kate Alen's Master Pilot video in F-Zero GX.

Upon beating any Grand Prix on Master mode with the Super Piranha, it will unlock a special video for Kate Alen, which also features her theme song.

Kate Alen can be seen dancing in the spotlight as the camera changes to a view of her backside. As her theme song kicks in, the scene reveals a catwalk. Kate walks the fashion runway, and it isn't long before she is seen in various outfits of different colors (dark blue, red, green, light blue, light green), along with what appear to be multiple versions of her all at once. Cameras in the background flash as each Kate passes by, until two Kates walk back to the entrance, followed by who is assumed to be the real Kate Alen in her familiar orange F-Zero attire. She poses with a smile at the entrance, tilting her head to the side as the video ends.

Trivia

  • The Nintendo Power F-Zero GX Player's Guide mistakenly translated her machine designer's name as "Team Power Boys." It should actually be "Team Power Voice."
  • In her GX interview, when asked what she was doing "one year ago," she says "Performing at an outdoor concert at Red Canyon. Who would've thought I'd end up here?" This line implies this concert took place in the same year as the F-Zero X Grand Prix, but before it.
  • In her GX Master Pilot video, she walks the fashion runway, but numerous copies of herself appear at some point.
  • Kate is one of the few pilots in to not appear in the F-Zero GX Story Mode cutscenes. However, she does appear in-game during the Chapter 7 F-Zero GX Grand Prix.
